Hacienda Corona de Guevavi is a bed and breakfast perched on top of 36 acres of the Guevavi Ranch.
Former Cattle Ranch
Once a thriving cattle ranch, the romantic inn is situated near the banks of the Santa Cruz River between the towns of Tubac and Patagonia in Nogales, Arizona. Rooms range from $189, including breakfast, wine and cheese.
Guest can enjoy one hour private or semi-private lessons during their horseback riding vacation at the Hacienda Corona with riding instructor Phil Stover. For equestrians wanting to ride two and a half hours to five day over-night pack trips, Ride the West is an equitrekking company offering pack trips and trail rides to horse enthusiasts of all levels.
Ride the West uses Quarter Horses and matches each horse to the rider’s experience. Their horses have been trained and chosen for their endurance and ability to handle Arizona’s rocky and varied terrain. Due to terrain and long hours in the saddle, novice riders will want to spend some time preparing for their horseback riding vacation.
